WooHoo!!!<br><br>
"At this year's American College of Sports Medicine meeting in New Orleans, researchers from the University of Texas at Austin reported that a bowl of wheat flakes with milk was just as effective in boosting exercise recovery as a specially formulated sports drink -- by providing a good balance of glycogen-restoring carbohydrates as well as protein for muscle repair. <b>Another tried-and-true recovery drink for many athletes is chocolate milk -- it's protein- and carb-rich, with fluid, potassium and cocoa antioxidants to boot.</b>" - source L.A. Times<br><br>
Tastes a lot better than those expensive energy replacement drinks too!

I have been drinking a glass of chocolate milk with my dinner my whole life (almost). Imagine how happy I was to learn that I should drink one after a long run! Yippee! I've been doing this for a while now... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
